Review of SS Misr

Originally built in Preston in 1918 by the Royal Navy, SS Misr was bought and later converted (1938) into a luxurious Nile steamer for King Farouk, Egypt's last Monarch. The name of the vessel means ‘the Kingdom of Egypt’.

Wnen in 1952 Egypt's monarchy was overthrown, Misr became state property. The ship was allocated to the Ministry of Irrigation, where languished in a shipyard in Cairo. Traveline bought it in 2003 and with special permission from state authorities, SS Misr was entirely rebuilt according to the original drawings. In 2006 it was re-launched and returned to the splendour of its heyday.

Today, the fully restored to a 5-star deluxe propeller steamship accommodates just 45 guests in air-conditioned, spacious cabins and suites. Misr cruise ship is elegantly furnished throughout. Saraya Lounge, Dahabia Bar and Marasem Restaurant are on the higher decks and offer wonderful views of Nile River. The period-style restaurant is able to accommodate all passengers at one sitting. It is situated on the main deck and serves international cuisine. Breakfast and lunch are buffet-style while dinner is waiter-served. Tables seat 6 to 8 people. Tea and coffee are offered on a complimentary basis during breakfast as well as at afternoon tea. Special dietary requests should be made (in writing) in advance. However, the ship is unable to guarantee some special requests and is not prepared to serve halal or kosher cuisine.

There is a lower sun deck with wicker chairs and upper sun deck with comfortable sun beds for relaxation and a pool. The attentive staff are always at hand to offer a cool beverage.  SS Misr also has a gift shop selling local (handmade) souvenirs.
